I have a question about program completion time for a 3M license at the academies. They each have their pluses and minuses but a big one for me is the time it takes to complete a course of study and obtain the license.
I keep reading that federal regulations mandate at least 3 years for cadets to study at the academy before obtaining their license. Is this true?
Then regarding each of the academies:
SUNY: I am interested in the MS in ITM+LO
In an earlier thread HERE
@saltyseamen mentions that the program at SUNY can be completed in 2.5 years.
Is this true? Is this just for the undergraduate LO or for the MS+LO? Does anyone have any experience with a cadet completing their degree and getting a license in 2.5 years?
CAL and MAINE
Both seem pretty adamant that their degrees take 4 years. Though it seems like this has more to do with limited availability of class times and sequencing. I live in California by the way so Cal is a real option for me as well to keep costs down.
I am interested in the MMAL program +LO. I’ve heard the undergrad program can be completed in 3 years? does anyone have any experience with this?
